I recently stayed at the Hotel Hanga Roa for four nights on a trip to Easter Island. The hotel is undergoing a remodeling, and all of the superior rooms that are currently available have been recently refurbished. Hotels (as well as everything else) are very expensive on Easter Island. We booked through a travel agent, but I believe that the front desk listed the going rate for a room as $250. This is about what the Ritz-Carlton in Santiago costs, but there are no luxury accomodations on Easter Island. That being said, the hotel room was clean and had everything we needed. The TV only had two channels, but I think that is standard for the island. The hotel is a bit outside of town, but it a nice 10 minute walk down a paved raod. Given that there is no traffic on Easter Island to be concerned about, there is really no reason to try to be in the "town center." The hotel did have a nice breakfast included in the price. We ate at the hotel restaurant one night and found it to be extremely overpriced, not to mention that they did not have any of the items I wanted to order (I tried to order a sandwich and they said they were out of bread.) Even though I would not say that the Hanga Roa is a good value, I would still recommend it, as no one else I met seemed to have any better experience with their accomodations. You just have to accept that Easter Island is extremely expensive (which is understandable given its distance from the mainland) and that the accomodations and restaurants are simply not of the same caliber you can get on the mainland. That being said, it is a once in a lifetime experience to be in this "navel of the world" and see the moai up close. Although we were there for 4 nights, given the expense of the hotels and restaurants and lack of anything to do other than the archaelogical tours, I would recommend staying only three nights, which is more than enough time to see everything.
